Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly far from reaching an agreement with Raheem Sterling over a new contract, that’s according to the Guardian.
The England international joined the Etihad outfits from Liverpool for £44m in 2015 and he will see out the contract by the end of this season.
Though Guardiola has charged his employers to ensure the 23-year-old renew his contract, the club’s hierarchy are yet to convince the player into extending his deal with the team.
Arsenal must explore the contract saga between both parties to capture the player’s signature by launching a mouthwatering bid for the winger.
Since they parted ways with Alexis Sanchez — who joined Manchester United in the previous winter market, Arsenal are yet to find the perfect man to replace the Chilean at the right wing position.
Since Guardiola took charge of Manchester City, Sterling has improved tremendously and his end product is far better and impressive than his time at Anfield Stadium.
Though Unai Emery has a huge number of centre-forwards in the team, that can’t be said of a winger with great pace, direct run, fast decision-making ability, among others.
All of these traits plus goalscoring ability are all embedded in the 23-year-old winger and that makes him the best player to partner Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the right side of attack.
His inclusion to the Gunners setup would surely make the Gunners frontline more deadly than ever.
